Testimonies of Related / Interested Witnesses

Apoorve Raj Singh | Vanshika Chaudhary

Abstract: Testimonies of related/interested witnesses hold substantial importance in legal proceedings and investigations. These witnesses possess a close connection to the subject matter under scrutiny, making their accounts potentially valuable in unraveling critical aspects of a case. However, their personal associations also raise concerns about biases and motivations that can impact the veracity of their statements. This abstract delves into the significance of such testimonies, exploring the challenges of handling related/interested witnesses in legal contexts. The importance of meticulous evaluation, cross - examination, and corroboration with other evidence to determine the credibility of these testimonies is emphasized. By addressing potential biases, legal professionals can effectively utilize related/interested witnesses' contributions while ensuring a fair and equitable pursuit of justice.
